UFO Update (35)

Posted by dandare on March 30, 2008

ufo-online-soap.jpgWelcome to Update (35)….

600px-ovni.jpgtheblackvault.com has made it known (and i was not aware of this until now) that the MUFON UFO journals are available free on their site; see here about this information, and for the journals available see here. What does this mean;  both MUFON and the black vault have joined forces. 

In march 2008, both agreed to work together and make archives available for free, for anyone to look at. There are archives from 1967 up until 2007, accessable for everyone 🙂 

For instance, the december issue (2007) has an interesting article on “How MUFON handles photo and video analysis“…see page 4 onwards; and “orange balls of light” (page 5 onwards) in june’s issue (1990)… many more excellent articles/debate can be found here.      

In “man recalls UFO sighting ” (cnews.ca -across canada, 24th march,2007) he mentions

Ernest Buisse, 82, was on his parents’ farm near Redvers, Sask., in the summer of 1950 when he believes he witnessed an unidentified flying object” (extract from article).


wltx.com has “Man wonders if he caught UFO on tape” + a video (22nd march,2008).he mentions

Jeffrey Swetz of Cedar Creek says he saw it earlier this week, and picked up his camera and started rolling. He said it looked like a star but seemed much brighter ” (extract from article).

In theheraldnewonline “UFO symposium set for Tinley park ” (28th march,2008)… it says

 “A handful of red lights appeared in Tinley Park skies in 2004 and 2005, capturing the attention of dozens of residents.Some people said the lights moved or changed formation, while others said they were still” (extract from article).

In ufodigest, “No FOIA favoritism” (21st mrach,2008), it talks about

The Judicial Watch lawsuit how in front of a Federal Court involves 20,000 pages plus they have another lawsuit involving millions of pages. If JW wins their requests they will tie up the archivists at the Clinton Library for years. This will delay the UFO files from being released until after the Hillary files are processed” (extract from article).

Also from ufodigest, is “Texas law officers release diagram, description of UFO” (25th march,2008).


An Erath County, Texas, law enforcement officer has released a detailed diagram of an unidentified object seen by several officers.

The diagram and related information about the Stephenville region sighting were made available to the public today, March 25.

The drawing includes specific colors and dimensions of the object as well as related information.

The diagram and descriptions have been posted on the Web site StephenvilleLights.com ” (extract from article).

real.jpg <—(illustration not part of any of these articles)

The latimes.com has “Seeking UFOs, deep underground” (28th march, 2008)

Davenport says that of the vast majority of UFO sightings, up to 90% are explainable: weather balloons, military aircraft, satellites and the like. Many more prove to be hoaxes.

But then there’s the tiny percentage, maybe only a handful each year, where something was definitely seen — often by multiple reliable sources — and that defy explanation.
He believes that clues lie buried in these hill-sized mounds of paper that he has meticulously cataloged, if only the government or a university would do the research”
(extract from article).
In aliencasebook.blogspot.com there is an excellent post on “UFO – cold case private investigators locate chad drone photo location” (29th march, 2008).

OTHER Articles of interest

In seti.com/blog (26th march, 2008) it has “Aliens from Earth?”

In KIII TV3 (26th march, 2008) “Was it a UFO above Corpus Christi skies?

Isaac/Chad/CARET/california drones…what is going on? (part 1)

Posted by dandare on March 29, 2008

I admit, that at first, i just brushed all this under the carpet (although my thoughts on what they are, has not changed), and did not really take much notice of it all. Now with the recent La times article, of 2 detectives searching for answers, i thought i would attempt to look at it myself, in more detail.

I would like to thank these forums for interesting information, and thoughts on the matter…. these are: abovetopsecret.com, unexplained-mysteries.com, unifiction.com, open minds forum… For websites: i have consulted many for more information,ect (i will try and add all of them at the end of this post).

 The first reports of the drone, was in may 2007; it appeared first, On the coast to coast website, the report appeared here—–> http://www.coasttocoastam.com/gen/page2022.html?theme=light . Also witness account there too.

Submitted May 1oth, 2007

Location, central valley of California. Later found to be Bakersfield? california.

Report date: (from camera) May 6th

But Chad reported it as being seen as early as April 2007 (on numerous occassions). See below for the photos:








I will just comment here, my first reaction to these photos…..

  1. we get a full array of profiles…close, distant (at slightely different angles)
  2. All very sharp, almost too good
  3. What are those black marks around (and close to) the drone, you can see in most of them? to me it looks suspiscious?

At this point, i will add the link from MUFON, as it argues this is a fake  http://www.hyper.net/ufo/vs/m05-001.html  with an interesting argument; also analyists check the photos supplied.

  These photos were scans of the original…..

Also, there has been a comparison made, with the Chad photos, to an incident in Devon (england) in 1967 (26th october, in South Devon)….did ‘Chad’ get some of his ideas from this?….. see below for video.

For a report on the incident see http://www.ufologie.net/htm/dorset67.htm and   http://www.project1947.com/shg/hennessey/ufoinv4-4.htm (with diagrams)…thanks to http://www.hyper.net/ufo.html for making this information aware to me, on the website.

 Second sighting:

Location: Lake Tahoe, nevada

Posted by MUFON 7013

Date of event: 5th may, 2007

Images taken on cell phone

2 photos were placed on MUFON, on 12nd May,2008 and then slightly later at UFO casebook.com at http://www.ufocasebook.com/strangecraftlaketahoe.html (see link for details).



The first time Rajinder Satyanarayana (Rajman 1977) is mentioned is on craigslist, on the 20th may, 2007. He writes “Bizarre thing in the sky in capitola, CA ….WTF is this (capitola)”. He gives us 6 photos to look at; his name is quickly removed from craigslist, so he adds his name as Rajman1977, on a flickr account, with the photos from before….. account soon hacked though.

He alleged the event took place on the 16th may, 2007

Camera used: Konica Minolta DiMAGE X

The one we are most interested with here, is the one below (again we have near and very close shots as well). 


One of the photos (seen above), is the one that the two detectives are now (in 2008) trying to trace, ie the telegraph poles location….. what i do not understand is why only the one photo…. if these draw a blank, should they not look for other clues, in the other photos, from ‘chad’ and others?


 (the photo illustration above, is one of several noted in the ufocasebook forum; it brings up some interesting problems with the photo). This, and many more problems/discussions will be written about much more fully in (part 2).

Next we have the big basin sighting, (california) 

Submitted on the 6th june 2007 ….. by Jenna L (a freelance photographer) on behalf of Stephen… although again much later, there is a debate to suggest this is not the true location at all.

Report date: 5th june 2007

Camera: Cannon Rebel XT

There were 3 photographs….. see http://ufocasebook.com/bigbasin.html for more details







Slightly later reported, but with the same reported sighting date: Big basin, california

Submitted on 16th june 2007 by someone called TY

Reported date: june 5th, 2007 (same as one above)

Sent to earthfiles.com ……. unfortunately as this is subscription based (for the archive), and i am not a member, i cannot access it.

I know there are 12 photographs, and i do have a link/photos to this but have misplaced it…. will add when found.

Isaac + the CARET documents  (posted on the internet in june 2007)

CARET = Commercial Applications Research for Extraterrastrial Report   pacl-q486-report-cover-fullsize.jpg

The CARET laboratory is in Palo Alto, CA (Isaac there from 1984-1987)

He was recruited for the CARET program.

Both an engineer  + computer scientist

the drone  

  • uses invisibility
  • Interference (not from humans) caused invisibilty to become inoperative
  • Technology= antigravity
  • symbols = software programs that self executed as a functional blueprint

Before Isaac resigned and became a ‘whistleblower’ – he managed to take out documents; these were

Q3 – 85 inventory review pacl-q385-inventory-review-fullsizes.jpg

Q4 – 86 Research report 180px-pacl-q486-photo-4-fullsize.jpg  180px-pacl-q486-photo-3-fullsize.jpg 


photo scans

He was concerned about safety if who he was, was known

He made it common knowledge that main source of information was to be spread through coast to coast website

This is just a rough outline of CARET and ‘Isaac’. His website can still be seen at http://isaaccaret.fortunecity.com 

So a quick recap to the 5 main sightings:

  1. chad – may 10th 2007    Bakersfield, california
  2. MUFON submitter 7013 wife – may 12th 2007   Lake Tahoe, Nevada
  3. Rajinder Satyanarayana (Flickr acccount name Rajman 1977) – may 20th 2007   Capitola, california
  4. Jenna L on behalf of Stephen – june 6th   Big Basin, california
  5. Ty – june 16th big basin, california

Actual sightings occurred on

  1. may 6th 2007
  2. may 5th 2007
  3. may 16th 2007
  4. june 5th 2007
  5. june 5th 2007

There are also allegedly other sightings going as far back as 1995? but i have not referred to them for this analysis… this can be seen at earthfiles.com

This covers part 0ne……. and is really a quick outline about the drone sightings, without going into too much detail. In part 2, i will be covering the problems/analysis/discussing the drones sightings/photos/CARET documents in more detail…. 

Websites invaluable for sources of information are:

After renewed interest in california drones….. report of sightings + analysis..coming soon

Posted by dandare on March 27, 2008


After recent renewed interest in the california drones, seen in articles:

UFO reports draws national attention to Capitola” (mercurynews.com- 27th march, 2008)

UFO Investigation centres on Capitola” (Kcra.com- 26th march, 2008)

A UFO cold case“ (posted 18th march,2008….latimes.com)

 A similar article can be seen at upi.com “detectives seek ufo answers” (posted 18th march,2008).


And also from comments in UFO Update (34), i have decided to attempt to put together all the sightings, and analysis the drones, plus the Isaac paperwork. This will be in 2 parts (first part – the sightings themselves…. second part – the analysis and possible answers to the drone effect).

However, due to time constraints, i am not quite sure when they will be available…. although i have got through quite a bit of what will make up part 1. I would be glad of any input, and  welcome your comments.

UFO Update (34)

Posted by dandare on March 22, 2008

Welcome to UFO Update (34)………..

and a happy Easter to you all….


Inexplicata.blogspot.com (the journal of Hispanic Ufology) has “Roundup: the 2008 UFO wave of Argentina” (march 12th,2008). 

In “A UFO cold case” (posted 18th march,2008….latimes.com) investigators are searching for Raji, who allegedly photographed a UFO drone, and then disappeared on the internet… I do not know why this is being discussed or investigated, as it is a well known fact that these photos are fakes. 


 A similar article can be seen at upi.com “detectives seek ufo answers” (posted 18th march,2008).

From airshippilot.blogspot.com “UFO…no just a blimp” (posted 20th march,2008).

in blog.seattlepi.nwsource.com “Discussion on UFOs” (posted 16th march,2008) is a thought provoking post. I agree with this statement especially “In general, if someone is bent on pursuing such a frustrating subject they fall into one of three categories.

They may be digging for proof of alien life, they may be trying to uncover dark world governmental activities relating to unidentified objects, or their drive may be a combination of both, the search for proof of alien visitation and contact and the government’s hidden knowledge of that fact along with its pursuits of harnessing alien technology” (extract from article).I would, as has been mentioned before on this blog, have to fall into the ‘both’ category. The comments at the end of this article…. worth a glance. A later article by the site is also worth a look “UFOs and what to do” (posted 19th march,2008).


azcentral.com has “UFO buff explores Chandler crop circles” (posted 19th march,2008); 

It says “Polani said he regrets not being able to photograph the Chandler phenomenon from the air; the crop was harvested hours after he spotted it.
He was able to walk into the field and capture patterns of downed stalks pointing in different directions among clusters of stiff, erect plants. And he picked up a few of the damaged stalks which appeared to be burned and bent in different places
” (extract from article). For those interested, there is a good article here (by Andy Thomas on the UK 2007 crop circles).

wapakdailynews.com has “Spreading secrets” (posted 12th march,2008)… i’m afraid this was one post i missed in last weeks update.

thestar.com has an article, covering the recent Alien abduction festival “An ET invasion for a cause” (posted 21st march,2008).


In theindependent.com (santa Barbara) “Plasmatron oscillators and psionic helmets – available now!” (posted 15th march,2008). I think i’ll turn down the offer however…..

MyFox has “UFO captured on tape in Pasco” (posted 14th march,2008); it comes with a video……

The telegraph.co.uk has “Prof Michio Kaku on the science behind UFOs and time travel” (posted 20th march,2008).

But what is frustrating to scientists is that, of the thousands of recorded sightings, none has produced hard physical evidence that can lead to reproducible results in the laboratory. No alien DNA, alien computer chip or physical evidence of a landing has ever been retrieved” (extract from article)… however, it does go into some interesting theories, and possible outcomes.

Lastly, on a very serious note….. and i think an excellently made point about Tibet today comes from “Living nightmare of an alien takeover” (posted 20th march,2008)…….

It starts “You wake up to discover Britain has been taken over by aliens. The government and the royal family have fled into exile. National and local government, the army, the police, schools and universities, major banks and businesses and hospitals are now all run by aliens. They don’t speak English ” (extract from article)….it carries on with everything being destroyed…..by aliens and you can do nothing…. 

at the end it says”Then you wake up and realise it’s a nightmare. But it isn’t if you’re Tibetan. If you live in Tibet or the western provinces of China, this is what is happening. That is why Tibetan men, women and children are protesting – and dying. For them the nightmare is real” (extract from article). Sorry, this is not about UFOs, but the alien effect was a clever slant on things… on an important issue.

timesonline “science fiction author arthur c. Clarke dies aged 90” (posted 18th march,2008)

restarfilms.blogspot.com “UFOs: to weird to be extraterrestrials” (posted 21st march,2008)


  UPDATE: 26th march 2008

Further to the comments below, on the california drone sightings? i am in the middle of writing up a rather long post on the drone sightings…. this is taking longer than i thought… i hope to have it on here in the very near future (2 to 3 days)…. hence, i’m afraid (as this is taking up any spare time i have) i have been unable to add any new posts.

 I have not gone away/given up,ect…… thanks for your patience.

Although these videos can be seen at the present time, there is no guarantee that they will be there in the forseeable future… so if videos are unable to play, then i will endeavour/do my best to find new links to this, but may not be able too. Hope this opens your mind too all possibilities…obviously, yes videos are good to watch,but ideally, if you are really interested; then to get all the facts, try to seek out documentation and papers on the subjects involved….

Uk UFO sightings (march 2008)

Posted by dandare on March 16, 2008

276px-uk-map.pngI am following the Uk ufo sightings every month….. however, as i have said before, i am not sure what value they are to any UFO research.

Many of the sightings are sensationalised, with usually alot of information missing. Please keep this in mind as you view these postings from the local press. I will try to add updates (mainly just links to articles) at the end of this article for this month, as and when they arrive. 

 I will be adding information about MOD links, near the end of this article as well. 

Many local newspapers, are more interested in being ‘the UK hot spot’ of the year/moment,ect than anything else.

In halifaxcourier.co.uk, (posted 15th march,2008) “County is UFO hotspot“…. this was done by Virgin media with ufo data back to 1994 (study researched by Nick Pope- i would like to know where he pulled the data from; this is not added).

Therefore west yorkshire boasts, that it is the UK UFO hotspot, and i am assuming Nick Pope took data from the MOD ufo files that are readily available online; the telegraphandargus.co.uk (this is for bradford area) reaffirms this fact in “Keep your eyes to the skies” (posted 15th march,2008). However, this article claims that there were sightings in this area ….34 in the last 40 years (so 1994 as the last article suggested, is not right), and many above Bradford, apparently according to this article. From the virgin media site here , it mentions the data goes as far back as 1961.

In the dailyrecord.co.uk (scottish news) it boasts that “Lanarkshire is Scotlands UFO capital” (posted 15th march,2008). I think you can see the aims of all these articles…. again it is for the same virgin media study.

Lancashire, who probably feel a bit soar at coming third, with Yorkshire on the top of this list, still write in the lep.co.uk (lancashire news) “Lancashire is hot-spot for flying saucers” (posted 16th march,2008). At least it admits its motives, as it mentions that Nick Pope recommends Lancashire as a place to visit to possibly see ufos (or as they say”to spot a little green man”).


So are we talking bragging rights, extra tourism, and so on…. possibly; maybe, its also to sell some more papers. Also, what i find frustrating is where the data comes from…does it just come from one source, the MOD, and if so, should it also include other data; also, should there be more than one researcher on this, collorating the results?

In the granthamjournal.co.uk “Gonerby UFO sighted over Saskatchewan” (posted 13th march,2008). There is a basic drawing of the UFO, and the Gonerby sightings draws (no pun intended) parallels with a Canadian sighting at Saskatchewan, which was seen in 2005. For interest, you can also see previos UFO sightings reported by this paper here.

The same paper also has “Reader tries to pass off fake UFO picture”  (5th march,2008).

In the bedfordtoday.co.uk there are two articles in the month of march “Mysterious goings-on in luton skies leave onlookers baffled” (posted 6th march,2008) and “plenty more UFO sightings to report in Luton area” (posted 13th march,2008). The first one is  standard faire (for the local papers), and the second is a extraterrestrial versus skeptical counter argument article. For previous ufo sightings that the paper has done, see here .

In the Islingtongazette.co.uk (posted 11th march,2008) “MOD inquiry into Archway UFO mystery” , covers the sighting from a year ago, and what has happened since… It says

Now the Gazette can reveal that top level government agencies looked into the phenomenon – which many believe was nothing more than floating Chinese lanterns.
The Gazette sent a Freedom of Information request to the Ministry demanding to see every document relating to the Archway incident, as well as a total cost of the investigation
” (extract from article). 

For just a daft, alleged alien encounter see “The moment when aliens decided to land in enfield” Posted 4th march,2008 by enfieldindependant.co.uk).

For another just daft article, “Alien doctors treated my cystitis” (posted 7th march,2008), by hartlepoolmail.co.uk. I’m soo going to believe this…and the woman being interviewed is writing a book about it to boot. ………………………..next please.

I’m afraid many also fail to follow up on their initial leads, and many reports just remain forgotten.


 The MOD will soon (similar to the french)  release more UFO files for public viewing, from this spring onwards; please see my previous post for more details at     https://dandare.wordpress.com/2007/12/23/mod-to-start-releasing-ufo-files-spring-2008/ (please bare in mind that some of the links to the MOD are not working, due to them moving and adding to them, and therefore moving the links).

I have added some below for you to see…. contrary to what you may have been led to believe by the media, there is already quite a bit out online. This is just a taster of what you can see for yourself from the MOD site.

 Requests for information about UFOs recieved in january 2005 

Also UFO search results on the site here 

UFO reports 1997-2007 

UAP in the UK region

Please also take a look at http://www.uk-ufo.org/condign/index.htm which has an invaluable resource on the MOD, especially on what is coming out this spring……especially the link http://www.uk-ufo.org/condign/di55docs.html 

MORE UPDATES WILL BE REPORTED BELOW HERE  (just as links to the sites involved, unless really interesting).

 c_71_article_1039964_image_list_image_list_item_0_image.jpg (illustration of Jodrell bank, UK; not part of these articles)

UPDATE : 17th March,2008

Shropshirestar.com has “Shropshire hotspot for UFO sightings” (posted 17th march,2008) with an interactive map included. (for same virgin media poll).

thisisplymouth.co.uk “City is tops for UFO sightings” (posted 17th march,2008). slightly misleading there i feel; and yes for same poll.

Oops… almost missed this article from the bbc.co.uk (scotland/tayside and central) “MOD releases secret files on UFOs” (posted 4th march,2008).

Louthleader.co.uk has an interesting article on “More earthquake light sightings” (posted 11th march,2008). 

A follow up article (from the same paper)  “International interest for leader lightning story” (posted 17th march,2008). also has some good links to other articles on the same lines, including the timesonline ….. worth taking a note of this phenomena, as it is still relatively unknown (includes lightning reations and ball lightning). Could this account for some UFO sightings?

 UPDATE: 18th march,2008

Buryfreepress.co.uk, has “Bury named UFO ‘hot spot’ ” (posted 18th march,2008)… similar faire for virgin media poll.

Also (for same poll) eadt.co.uk- suffolk and essex online has “Suffolk ranks highly for UFO sightings” (posted 18th march,2008).

thisislincolnshire.co.uk has a further article on the earthquake lights “Did UFO lights herald lincolnshire earthquake?” (posted 18th march,2008). Is there something in this… i think there possibly could be.

UPDATE 19th march:

The granthamjournal.co.uk has “UFO could be top secret plane” (posted 19th march,2008); this is linked to, and a follow-on post to    “Gonerby UFO sighted over Saskatchewan” (posted 13th march,2008)- which was added above.

In metro.co.uk it mentions “Proof that aliens are out there” (posted 17th march,2008-almost missed this article). Again it is proof that, not all you see on google earth, is actually what you see (if you know what i mean).


Birminghammail.net has “Birmingham named ‘weirdest place’ ” (posted 14th march,2008-again almost missed).. this also includes UFOs.

UPDATE: 21st march,2008

At virginmedia.com, they pick up on the earthlights phenomena “Expert probes earthquake lights” (no date shown, but posted within the last 2 days).

The sunderlandecho.com mentions the virgin poll again (the same as those above) in “You’re not alone in County Durham” (posted 20th march,2008).

Falkirkherald.co.uk mentions “Bonnybridge UFO claim” (posted 20th march,2008) ; the witness said “By the shape of it there was no way it was a plane. It looked oval shaped with flashing lights all around it, so we got out the van to have a look.
“After hovering for a while, it then just shot up into the sky and the speed it was going was phenomenal
” (extract from article).


thisislancashire.co.uk (again on the virgin poll) has “Lancashire and the UFOs” (posted 21st march,2008).

UPDATE 25th:

yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk has a very small mention of the UFO virgin poll (4 lines), in “A barmy way to save cash” (posted 22nd march,2008)…however the rest of the article is about something completely different.

** From theargus.co.uk… one of the worst ufo sightings video Ever in “UFO caught on camera in Sussex” (posted 23rd march, 2008). The video is well, at best hillarious!   

bakewelltoday.co.uk has “UFO sighting in Peak District Village” (posted 21st march,2008…sorry only recently found). It mentions “Sightings of orange lights over Litton have left residents baffled.
Ray Frost, who reported his February 24 sighting on the internet, said: “I think it was a UFO
” (extract from article).


kentonline.co.uk , in (i think) “welcome to kent” (posted 21st march,2008), there are a whole series of different short topics discussed…. what we are after is “STRANGE happenings from crabs falling from the sky to UFOs have earned the county a place in the top 10 of the UK’s Twilight Zone Hotspots, according to Disneyland Resort Paris” (extract from article). Nothing more is added.

The eveningtimes.co.uk has that Virgin UFO poll in “Glasgows UFO Fan Club” (posted 24th march,2008)… It says “Believe it or not, Glasgow has been named the UFO capital of Scotland.

The city has stolen the title from Bonnybridge, which for decades has been abuzz with reported sightings of alien spacecraft.

Glasgow is the only location in Scotland to make the Virgin Media Files, a specially compiled list of Britain’s top 10 places for spotting UFOs” (extract from article). and….”Glasgow’s tourism and civic leaders welcomed the news that inter-galactic tourists are seemingly flocking to the city” (extract from article).
UPDATE: 27th march, 2008

From the northantset.co.uk, there are 2 short posts “UFO spotted over Corby” (26th march, 2008)….. mmmm.   

And “Latest UFO news in from India” (27th march, 2008)…..i think this short post is summed up most aptly by the only person to comment….

That’s actually an IFO. It is a male Danaid_Eggfly. See photo here:
Come on folks. Stop wasting our time with reflections, bugs, and other fake ufos. If you have something truly extraordinary then show it. Please don’t make it difficult for serious UFO researchers
“. Couldn’t have said it better.


wigantoday.net has “UFO spotted in Wigan” (27th march, 2008) amd also has a video from cell phone… to be honest could be anything? (also earlier post i noticed…virgin poll again…”We’re a UFO hotspot“-20th march, 2008 ). 

From the granthamjournal.co.uk (27th march, 2008) it has “More UFO theories“; it states near the end “He said: “You dont want to see a space craft!. It’s just not worth the many lonely nights of siliently weeping and wondering to myself BECAUSE the goverment won’t confirm what I know to be true

“I CAN’T TAKE THE LIES ANYMORE“” (extract from article).

Rest assured, i am not lonely, crying, ect just more determined to find the truth (although some quite clearly think i’m nuts/a kook,ect……oh well things are looking up).

UFO Update (33)

Posted by dandare on March 15, 2008

We start this update with a fun object…….

 bovineabductee.jpg    humanabductee.jpg   pulsatingbeam.jpg

 “the Abduction Lamp” . It is still at the concept stage at the moment, but could have potential.  

Following on from the pheonix lights article, i wrote about recently…. at azcentral.com it discusses “Retooled documentary takes look at Pheonix Lights” (posted 13th march,2008); Also, azfamily.com “still explaining Pheonix Lights 11 years later” (posted 13th march,2008).

At lovefm.com “Belmopan residents report sightings of UFOs” (posted 12th march,2008), in which “a few residents in the Belmopan area saw some bright lights over the hills in the direction of the University Heights area last night. We were told that the unidentified objects were bright fire ball like lights that came on and off for about 30 seconds at a time” (extract from article).

In the UK, the halifaxcourier.com seems to maintaining the bragging rights in “Unexplained light above Halifax helps make west yorkshire UFO hot spot” (posted 14th march,2008). The survey was done by Virgin media (in the virgin media files, under UFOs)…


 For those not in the UK, this is owned by Richard Branson…….

I’m sure some other local newspaper, will be claiming its the UK UFO hotspot, before long though….

Staying in the UK, the lutontoday.co.uk mentions “Plenty more UFO sightings to report in Luton area” (posted 13th march,2008).

It mentions “Since last week’s article about mystery lights in the skies over Luton and Houghton Regis, this newsdesk has been inundated with readers sharing their own experiences.
From witnesses, sceptics and self-professed UFO fanatics, here is a selection of the responses….
” (extract from article). 

In the Islingtongazette.co.uk (posted 11th march,2008) “MOD inquiry into Archway UFO mystery” , covers the sighting from a year ago, and what has happened since… It says

Now the Gazette can reveal that top level government agencies looked into the phenomenon – which many believe was nothing more than floating Chinese lanterns.
The Gazette sent a Freedom of Information request to the Ministry demanding to see every document relating to the Archway incident, as well as a total cost of the investigation
” (extract from article). 


In turkey, at toplumpostasi.net “UFO” (posted 12th march,2008) it mentions

The sighting of a UFO this week has excited the Turkish media with pictures appearing in both tabloid style and more serious broadsheet papers this week. The flying object was spotted in the Karaköprü area of Şanlıurfa province towards 4am on Wednesday morning” (extract from article).

It goes on to mention a turkish ufo video (no link is given to it though, so i cannot comment on it)….. however, it does mention past ufo sightings in the country, which is of more interest. 

Although the group siriusufo.org is talked about, but to me, it is not a reliable source of information on this topic. To be fair, the article is critical of sirius, saying that it is more interested in getting people to go to the ufo museum, than anything else. The article was done by Fazile Zahir…..

elpasotimes.com has “Police say object was blimp with lights” (posted 13th march,2008).

A supposed UFO spotted floating over Socorro on Wednesday night was a blimp with lights around it, a Socorro police dispatcher said” (extract from article).


 (not related to articles, although it looks more like me, on the night shift)

nugget.ca (north bay nugget) talks of “Fire balls likely meteors, astronomy researchers say” (posted 13th march,2008). It mentions “Dave Roscoe, president of the North Bay Astronomy Club, mused Monday the sightings may have been debris from a U.S. spy satellite shot down Feb. 20.

And he said Tuesday in an e-mail the website http://www.heavens-above.com is reporting it’s not unrealistic for such debris to re-enter the atmosphere three or four weeks after it broke up. Roscoe said the site also indicates this area passes through the path of re-entry once or twice a day.

Edwards, however, said debris would be moving at a much slower pace than fast-moving fire balls witnesses have described. And he said a meteor is a much more likely explanation” (extract from article).

In the new scientist “Swarm of meteorites may solve Peru impact mystery” (posted 12th march,2008)….. when it hit, there were claims it was a crashed alien craft by some…. not me, i hasten to add. dn13453-1_600.jpg

It is an interesting article, well worth a read.

Mysterious lights appear in WA sky” (posted 1oth march,2008), “THE mystery behind the lights which appeared over WA skies early this morning has been solved. The Perth Observatory says the lights were caused by a meteorite building up in the atmosphere” (extract from article). Looks more like its meteorite updates week….. than ufo updates.

Robbie Williams now,  “[…]…is planning to splash out £2.5 million on an alien observatory” (extract from article) from stuff.co.nz entitled “Robbie wants close encounter” (posted 15th march,2008).


The Associated Press has, “House for sale: non-earthlings welcome” (posted 15th march,2008).

Also of interest:- “UFO book authors to present findings” (posted 10th march,2008).

Did you see the Pheonix lights nearly 11 years ago

Posted by dandare on March 13, 2008


From ABC15.com (posted 13th march,2008) for original post see here ; the full article is posted below. 

“It’s been over a decade since thousands of Valley residents reported a strange grouping of lights in the Arizona night sky.

Thursday marks the 11th anniversary of the “Phoenix Lights”.

It’s a phenomena that continues to draw questions from people around the world.

The lights of different descriptions were seen on the night of March 13th, 1997.

Some said they saw a triangular formation pass over their homes. Others saw a series of stationary lights in a long line.

The United States Air Force later identified the lights as flares from the Barry Goldwater Range, but many continue to believe differently.

Even former Arizona Governor Fife Symington reported seeing the lights, describing his encounter as a huge carpenter-square object moving over Phoenix.

Did you see the lights nearly 11 years ago? We want to hear from you. Email us your story at YouNews@abc15.com

We’ll share some of your stories Thursday morning starting at 5 a.m. on ABC15 Daybreak.

We’ll then look back at the Phoenix Lights, and try to answer some unexplained questions, Thursday at 10 p.m. on ABC15 News”.

The Texas UFO Triangle

Posted by dandare on March 13, 2008

What’s this i hear you cry…. well, if you take the land between Lubbock, Alpine and Albuquerque in New Mexico (which forms a triangle), this covers canyon and desert terrain. This area also has probably 6 of the most important UFO events; and it is also, not to far from Stephenville, to the East.   

View Larger Map

Within this area, we have the 1947 Roswell incident, a whole series of car stoppages near Levelland, Texas (1957- see here and here for more details), and a police officer in 1964, who witnessed an object land with entities, in New Mexico at Socorro (see here for details).

The amount of UFO occurrances between 1947-1952 in this area, meant the government expressed grave concern, as too what was going on.

 However, alot of scientific research is/was done in this area (early atomic bomb-tests and missile sites for example are all here).

Dr Lincoln La Paz (meteor expert- see here for more), spent many a year, researching green fireballs, that behaved unlike meteors- these incidents happened frquently in the 1940’s-1950’s.


Photo (above) taken around 1.30pm (16th october,1957) whilst driving on Highway 54 (south of Alamogordo, New Mexico); photo taken by Ella Fortune. It was near the Holloman Air Force Base, and close to the site of the first atomic explosion (in 1945). There is much debate as to what this is…. some say it is a lenticular cloud (although this is disputed, due to the fact, that it reflects too much light to be a cloud), others a balloon; however, as far as i’m aware, its origin has not been  established. The UFO was hovering motionless.

Several days later, near Levelland, a whole series of sightings took place….there were car stoppages (2nd and 3rd november 1957), also similar occurrances around Sacramento Mountains.

At Orogrande, an engineer, at 1pm on 4th november (1957), lost engine/radio/lights response on his car….this happened to others on the same road, as an oval shaped UFO, was seen. However, the engineer, also endured waves of heat…..later that day, alot of his body became red/itchy.  

7th november (1957), not far from above (ie in the vacinity), 2 people in their car at 9.20am, saw a UFO, and immediately the speedometer was affected.


In 1951 (august 31st), at Lubbock, there was a photo taken of a V-shaped formation of lights. However, we now know these ‘lights’ were in fact birds (see here for more details)!

In 1952, the lights returned, and a professor, Dr Ducker, went to great lenghts to establish that they were birds, with a whole series of experiments. However, he also came to the conclusion, that not all were birds, and some were unknown.

This is just a taster, of the many UFOand IFO activities within/around this area….. also now, with the Stephenville ufo sightings just outside of this area to the East.   

 See the site http://www.nicap.org/   for many more ufo sightings, many described in detail, and an excellent site for research.

Jodrell Bank faced with closure – sign 10 downing street petition online

Posted by dandare on March 11, 2008



Jodrell bank, in the North West (Cheshire, UK) is being faced with closure …..In the Times online (posted 6th march,2008) “World leading telescopes face being shut down to save £2.5m” .

It mentions “Merlin’s strength comes from having seven telescope dishes, including the Lovell telescope at Jodrell Bank, linked to receive signals from space simultaneously. Because they operate in tandem up to 135 miles apart they offer unrivalled detail on distant gallaxies” (extract from article). 

This is a disgrace, and i urge you to sign the 10 downing street petition (closing date september 6th,2008). see here . Last time i looked here, there were over 3000 signatures.

There is also an interesting article by the telegraph.co.uk (posted 7th march,2008) “UK astronomers to broadcast adverts to aliens“.

It says “The cosmic stunt marks a small step for man, a giant leap for advertising hype and underlines the desperation of British astronomers to find new sources of funding as they struggle to cope with swingeing cuts that now threaten institutions such as Jodrell Bank, the world famous observatory in Cheshire” (extract from article).

And “Alongside the risks to these and other projects is a 25 per cent cut in the STFC research grants to universities that will see numbers of postdoctoral researchers in space science and astronomy fall to their lowest level for seven years” (extract from article).
